Chicago Tribune Gets Twisted


Posted March 30, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Chicago Tribune publication Red Eye has hired area rapper Twista as a columnist.

The one-time Guinness Book of World Records title holder for Fastest Rapper will be featured in the print newspaper once a week, spittin’ out his thoughts on topical issues, asking fans questions, and giving folks the chance to ask him questions.


Based on his rap style and what’s in the news these days, the column could go something like this:

Agony was the feelin' when I saw the Iraqi soldier’s blood spilling
Poppin' lip and taking over his tip is why we had to kill him
Now his bodies in chalk and no longer can talk so then a life is lost
Somebody tricked off and the sniper was caught
So now his life’s his cost
You might get caught
So to make a move the military is petrified
All the best that tried won't even slide
So just bless the rest that died
Is it a test of pride when inside
You grip a trigger but you didn't wanna pull it
Could it be a mother or child that you notice
On the other side of the bullet
Should it matter now you figure ‘I'ma waste him’
I’m just a murder for the nation

Twista's seventh album, Adrenaline Rush 2007, will be released on Atlantic Records in August.
